I don’t think like you
And you don’t think like me

My love and respects are at odds

You don’t look like me

In my mind, this quote has a dual meaning.

Both meanings are important to me.

We are all human beings, different in ethnicity, skin color, physical looks, educational backgrounds and so much more.

Yet, deep inside, we all are the same.

We all are born the same way.

We all breath oxygen and we all bleed red.

Animals are sentient beings who were here on this Earth before any human being.

They feel fear and pain as humans do.

They are all different amongst themselves.

Yet, they all are born the same way.

They all breath oxygen and they all bleed red.

The Most Influential Blogger Award …. from Just Patty!!

~~May 30, 2014~~ 

It Is What It Is” has been nominated for the “Most Influential Blogger” Award by Patty from

~~In her own words~~

Don: When I receive “older” awards I create new badges, gives a bit of a “refresh” and adds some Don Charisma magic. For this one I wasn’t sure how to create the badge. I started by asking for opinions on “the most influential person”. Unfortunately all of the most influential people throughout history have an Achilles heel – There is no universal liked and accepted “most influential person”.

So my idea – a superhero badge. Research indicates that Superman is the number one superhero. Plus there is also a Superwoman.

So my choice – the Superman “S” logo for the badges. There’s one for the ladies and one for the guys, plus I’ve included the “old” original badge too.





~~Conditions For Accepting The Award~~

To accept this award, the awardee must do the following:

Display the Award on your Blog.

“Just Patty’s” Corner …. the power of the written word!

~~April 27, 2014~~

I’m starting a new “series” in my “spot”.

“Just Patty’s” Corner …. the power of the written word! 

Patty is a very dear friend and can be found at:


In her own words: 

“By now you should already noticed that I am a bit strange. But I can promise you, I am totally harmless! (most of the time…) Anyways, let me tell a bit more about me and my writings. I started writing poetry after my big brother died when I was 14 to find a way to express my feelings. But it wasn’t until 2013 when I started to actually publishing my poems on a blog. Before, I just never had the courage to share my deepest and mostly dark feelings with anyone. I was just writing to save my sanity. (can’t say that worked though).


But I got so much support that I started to write more and more. And I am loving it!

I have always being attracted to the more darker forms of poetry, I adore Edgar Allan Poe. Maybe because dark poetry seems to be more raw.  Before I started to write dark poetry, the darkness was already inside me. Always lurking right beneath the surface, waiting till I lost my strength so it could consume me.

dark poetry

Because I let it out now every once in a while by writing, I was able to tame the beast and be the person who I am today. Me, without restrictions or suppression. At the same time that I started to blog my poems, I also wrote a young adult fantasy novel which was published April, 2014, in Holland.


When I blogged about this, many of my friends asked me if I would also be publishing a poetry book. It made me think, would I dare to? Well, I never back down from a challenge, so I dared! Soon I will be publishing my very first poetry book called My Wings.

I have written this book under the name Just Patty.

Why the name ‘Just Patty’? Because writing poetry is a naked reflection of the heart and soul, nothing more and nothing less.

It’s Just Me without decorations.

Cover My Wings

‘Poetry is a way of showing your darkest thoughts and deepest feelings through the art of words. Listen to the music of your soul and let your pen dance on the rhythm.’

I illustrated this poetry book with some black & white photographic artwork made by me.

Wrong love

I always illustrate my poetry with photographic artwork that I make. I model for the photos myself, shoot them and edit them. It’s a great way to combine two of my favorite things!”

I’m lucky to have Patty as a very dear fellow blogger and more than that a very dear friend. She’s the “lil sis” I never had. 

I ordered her poetry book and I can say it’s amazing. I regret that I can’t read Dutch because her I’ve heard her adult fantasy book is beyond excellent. 

Get ready … because there will be more “Just Patty” heading your way! 


“My Wings” ….., April 7, 2014
I have the pleasure and the honor to know Patty personally. She’s a young, bright, talented upcoming photographer, poet and writer who has had some experiences in her life which have molded her as the strong person she is. In spite of this, she has continued to battle on this path that we call life. Out of this, she has used the feelings she has had … and, as a painter would to canvas, she uses the written word for expression. This book is an indicator of these experiences and feelings. The has a “light” side and a “dark” side, as we all do.
Patty writes from the heart and wears her feelings on her sleeve. I love this final product of all the snippets that she has been posting on her blog. Here: […]

If you want to experience “real life” emotions, this is the book to read!! I can’t wait to get my copy. Totally and completely recommend this book. Rating” 5 stars +!!

A great book for poem lovers!, April 7, 2014
I loved this book, beautiful writing, tasty art. This book is filled with poems, it also contains great photography. Patty does an amazing job with both volumes of her “light” and “dark” wings poetry. You can’t find this passion anywhere else.

Highly recommended read, 10/10!
You get an opportunity to see into her life, feel her emotions and walk with her down her path.
This is a book that you will read every page of, and enjoy it all!

I can only imagine even more great things coming from this author.
